Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing field, focused on the creation of functional materials, devices, and systems by controlling matter on a nanometer scale, and the utilization of novel phenomena and properties at that length scale. The application of nanotechnology in periodontology holds promise for the maintenance of comprehensive health care by using nanomaterials, including tissue engineering and nanorobots. A literature review was carried out on Google Scholar and PubMed about nanotechnology in periodontics, and the data have been taken from the selected articles and reviewed. This review gives an up-to-date view on nanotechnology, their role in diagnosis and management of periodontal diseases.
